Listen to interviews with Webber, Windsor and ten Kate

Over the past week Crash.net has gained exclusive interviews with some of motorsport's leading names, both on two wheels and four – and here's your chance to listen to three of the best of them on our latest podcast.

Whether your primary love is Formula 1, MotoGP or World Superbikes, we've got it all covered here, with Red Bull Racing star Mark Webber, Peter Windsor – co-founder of new American F1 team USF1 – and James Toseland's old WSBK team manager Ronald ten Kate all chatting at length ahead of the 2009 season.

Webber speaks frankly about his mountain-biking accident last November, recovery from a broken leg and the challenge that awaits him this year in the shape of not only the sport's new regulations, but also an exceptionally hungry team-mate in Sebastian Vettel, the top flight's latest superstar and youngest-ever grand prix winner.

Windsor discusses the formation of USF1, why now is the right time to be aiming for an entry into F1 – credit crunch or no – and who might potentially drive for the team once it does get its grand prix break, with names such as Jonathan Summerton, Scott Speed and IndyCar's first-ever female race-winner Danica Patrick all believed to be in the frame.

ten Kate, finally, muses over Toseland's prospects in MotoGP this year and why he reckons the Englishman will take a big step forward compared to 2008, as well as the new 600cc Moto2 class, what he hopes for from Jonny Rea in the Ulsterman's maiden WSBK season and the challenge he expects his team to receive from young British talent Cal Crutchlow in World Supersport over the coming months...
